"Today, the Working Families Party voted to endorse two visionary candidates who will transform NY into a progressive leader and put the power back into the hands of the people, not just a wealthy few". She made the announcement last week, however now she is the news for her support of recreational marijuana legalization. The Working Families Party endorsement could give her a ballot line in the November general election even if Cuomo wins the Democratic nomination. As a long-time advocate for progressive values, Cynthia is committed to fight for a better, more equal NY. WFP also voted to back Councilman Jumaane Williams (D-Brooklyn) for lieutenant governor over current LG Kathy Hochul.

"I am so incredibly excited to have earned the endorsement from the Working Families Party, the heart & soul of communities across the state".
